WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge is still on-going and now it looks like they’ve figured out an amazing reason to capture people’s interest. Before, they were just mixed tag teams competing in a round robin tournament. But now, there are some real stakes in play.
WWE has announced that the winners of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge Tournament this year will receive the coveted 30th entry in the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
This is a pretty big deal and really makes things interesting as things wind down in the tournament. If you’ve been watching so far, you know how entertaining the action is, but now you’ll see the winners come out as the final entrant during the Royal Rumble match.
The Royal Rumble will be a pretty big event, and it will need to be if they’re filling up a baseball stadium. Now the Mixed Match Challenge suddenly serves a greater purpose in WWE’s bigger storylines.
